Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – ‘Ballad Of The Mighty I’ [Review]

noel gallagherNoel Gallagher scarcely needs an introduction – but given that some people out there are unaware of Paul McCartney’s existence, maybe he will soon. Gallagher has a well-deserved and hard-earned reputation as one of the best songwriters of an entire generation – a phenomenon who emerged as a Read more…
